Abuja - The Presidency have announced that President Muhammadu Buhari will meet with leaders from the Niger Delta at a later date than originally scheduled, Naij reports.

The meeting between President Buhari and leaders of the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PNDF) which was scheduled for October 29, will now be held on Monday October 31.

“It was actually a suggestion that the meeting be held on that date, but having found out that 29 is a Saturday, you know it is not possible to drag the President for such a meeting on that day, the better day is Monday, October 31, so that is the new date,” the presidency said.

News 24 reported that the Ijaw National Congress (INC) warned the Federal Government against entering into negotiations with just any groups who are merely seeking more relevance in the Niger Delta region.

INC Chief, Charles Harry said that certain groups were on a self preservation mission and were seeking to use any talks with the FG to gain a better standing in the region, adding that it would give rise to more groups.
